Four Seasons Newborn and Milestone Photography

One of the things I love most about being a Metro Detroit newborn and baby photographer is being outside in beautiful locations with beautiful natural light...ALL YEAR LONG!

When my own son was little, I had him outside as much as possible. I had so much fun photographing him as he grew in all seasons and all sorts of weather. I treasure those memories and adore my images from those early days.

Being a newborn photographer, I naturally keep up on what others are doing in Metro Detroit, and I can't help but notice that most newborn and infant photos are taken inside. And I get it, weather can be difficult to work around, and working outdoors presents other issues (noise, breeze...) that are easily avoided indoors.

But for me, nothing is more beautiful or timeless than mother nature. If you want a session that is truly unique, consider a outdoor maternity, newborn or baby session with me. I have even developed a Four Seasons Newborn and Milestone package!

I have developed a system to keep newborns warm and snugly outdoors, even in cool and damp conditions. The newborn here was photographed in the late afternoon, on a cool, late October day in 2019. The temperature was about 52 degrees. It was pretty breezy, and we had an unexpected drizzle happen just before we were scheduled to begin shooting. Since we were on site, we decided to wait out the unexpected rain, and the results were quite magical! Not only did she sleep nice and soundly, she flashed us a stunning smile to let us know she was happy.

Come by for consultation, see my work and products, discuss my methods and ask your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Each season in Michigan provides a unique opportunity to capture the beautiful story of time passing and growth. Come explore the wonders of our four season with me.


Michigan's spring bloom is amazing! This daffodil garden is the perfect setting for maternity, newborn, infants and family sessions. So many clients have made comments about finding Narnia or Neverland during these sessions.


Everyone loves summer! My outdoor newborn sessions are very popular in summer. I have a handful of locations in Metro Detroit the I love using for outdoor newborn photo shoots and I have a list of gardens and locations to scout as soon as early summer hits!


Michigan's fall is the most popular time for family photos and it is a great time for photographing your littlest ones outside too! Something about those burgundy and golden tones really get people excited.


Winter is one season that is often overlooked when planning photo sessions outside. I have a little secret to share - winter light is so pretty, it is actually my favorite kind of light to work in.
